Orphan of the week Series

BioPark Parent Orphan Week Series

For the next 8 weeks, we will be featuring our BioPark Parent’s “Orphan of the Week”. In this series, we will spotlight an animal, plant, fish or bug that does not have a parent to call its own.

Which one will grab your heart? Every Friday, you will have the chance to sponsor one of our “orphans”, and the best part? The minimum sponsorship is only $25, making this a great gift!

Your BioPark package will include a welcome letter, animal fact sheet, personalized certificate and more depending on how much you can spend to support your species.
